Marion man leads police on high-speed chase through Logan County


An area man was arrested in Rushsylvania after eluding police officers in a high-speed pursuit Tuesday afternoon around 3:30.

Bellefontaine Police were notified that the Union County Sheriff’s Office was in pursuit of a red SUV, driven by Brayzin McDaniel, 20, of Marion, westbound on Route 33 at a high rate of speed.

The suspect vehicle got off at the State Route 540 exit ramp and evaded law enforcement.

Officers were able to identify the suspect vehicle as a red 2014 Jeep SRT with a Georgia license plate.

A BOLO was put out and authorities spotted McDaniel in the area of East Sandusky Avenue and Hayes Street.

He fled northbound on Hayes Street at a high rate of speed and eventually proceeded out of Bellefontaine on Route 68.

Officers continued their chase until McDaniel pulled into a driveway of a Rushsylvania residence in the 3300 block of County Road 118.

He surrendered and was taken into custody.

Officers report speeds reached well over 100 MPH.

McDaniel laughed about the incident after being detained.

He was lodged in the Logan County Jail on a felony charge of failure to comply with lawful order or signal of a police officer.
